Because of the forum problems we were having over this past week and because of a forum software upgrade, some posts and some user accounts have been lost. If you were affected, please accept our sincere apologies.

If your forum account was lost, please re-register. Some of us moderators were lost as well. Unfortunately, if this did happen to you, all of your posts are now lost.

For posts that were lost, please recreate them if necessary.

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

We have lost a number of users and their profiles. I will be slowly replacing those users with dummy users soon. This was caused by a database crash this morning. More news soon.

kerz, our admin, was able to recover the accounts and the posts associated with them. These accounts are all now named Lost User with your old user account number. We can't give them back to you, but we can rename them so they will be easier for you to find. Please post in the topic linked to below to have this done. We will need the "Lost user" number to do this for you. Thanks.

The lost users topic is here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=594348
